An ancient colony founded in 630 BC as a settlement of Greeks from the Greek island of Theraand. then a Roman city in the time of Sulla c. 85 BC.It is now an archeological site near the village of present-day Shahhat. It is in a mountainous area in the north east side of Libya. The oldest "love Symbol" in the world was found there . If you're coming via Tripoli then it's better to take a flight to the Benghazi Benina airport which would get you much closer, then use a taxi or a microbus . If you can't come and go back within the same day then you can stay overnight in a hotel in Albayda which is not far from Shahhat.
